Ulysses Vineyard

Ulysses is the property of Christian Moueix, better known for the Right Bank house Etablissements J-P Moueix and the properties owned by the Moueix family in Saint Emilion and Pomerol.

About

Christian forged a lifelong passion for California when studying at the University of Davis and has gradually acquired property there. The Ulysses Vineyard nestles amongst the hills of southern Oakville, Napa Valley, just a mile north of Christian Moueix’s Yountville estate, Dominus. Indeed, the wine is made at the Dominus winery. The vines are planted on a mineral-rich alluvial fan at the foot of the Mayacamas Range, soil similar to Dominus, deep, gravelly clay-loam. The climate is slightly more continental in style than Dominus, imparting a forthright richness, concentration and energy, this intensity balanced by precision and refinement.

Tod Mostero is Christian Moueix’s man on the ground in California, overseeing both Dominus and Ulysses. Trained in Bordeaux, Mostero clearly shares Christian’s goals of authenticity, purity, freshness, drinkability and respect for terroir - paramount in a great wine. The approach is minimalist with close attention to detail and restrained intervention. The estate is dry-farmed, forcing the roots to dig deeply and intensifying that all-important sense of place
